DOLL QUILT FOR EXCHANGE

This is the doll quilt that I made for Kim, and she has received it now, so I can post it here.  I saw an antique doll quilt like this on pinterest that had been made circa 1870 - 1890, so I thought I would try to make a duplicate.  I didn't know what to use for the border, but I was digging through my stash and found this fabric which was perfect and it had the cheddar in it, so I used some cheddar for the basket and binding.


I machine quilted it since I really can't do much hand sewing any more.


This was a lot of fun!  Thanks, Lori!!
